crackle black is a nice idea...

...or phone round the usual specialists for better?  (I've forgotten the name of the trimmer many in the LMC have used - eg him)

...or fit different seats?

I've had the seats re-upholstered, and I've had the frames sandblasted, and then I painted the frames and other components, so I'm committed to sticking with these seats.  I'm sure there's a good solution!

I'm just throwing ideas around, but if rivets had to be drilled out to disassemble could small bolts be then used to reassemble? Is there anything useful in simonandjuliet's experience of masking off the threads on his Aprilia Cabrio re-chroming?

I'll take a look at that Frank.  I'm angling away from paint now as only one of the eight major components (two each side of each seat) really needs re-chroming.  The others should all clean up OK I think.

I think that if it was mine, I would not take it to pieces but look into spray chrome. I haven't tried it but picked up the card for someone at a show last year. They seem to be able to chrome anything and it looks excellent (and shiny) but may not be as hard wearing

I will be at Retromobile today (assuming Paris has thawed out a bit) and will keep an eye open for someone doing spray chrome and ask the question

Norm, if only one bit is beyond salvation that sounds like a case for finding a decent spare. There must be some out there.
